    A gas smuggler fills a Colombian car with gasoline on the Colombian side of the border between San Antonio and Cucuta June 9, 2011. In a dusty field just over the border in Colombia, Venezuelan drivers wait at a line of wooden shacks full of jerrycans to have their gas tanks emptied and the fuel sold on. Having filled up minutes earlier in Venezuela, the smugglers stand to make up to 4,000 percent profit on a single trip thanks to the disparity of gas prices between the two nations.
